The StreamLine Program was designed specifically for the lot owner who is trying to build a custom home from a distance and the unique demands they make.
By focusing on;
a predetermined process,
honest and open communication, and
an integrated team that has worked well together in the past,
We avoid the pitfalls most commonly associated with absentee building.
We have found that business people are looking for a businesslike approach to building a vacation home
The team collectively is working in the best interest of the homeowner

    • Introduction
    • StreamLine Program Overview
      The StreamLine Program is an integrated home design and building process focused on delivering the highest quality custom designed timber framed home that meets the aesthetic requirements, livability needs and budget parameters set forth by the customer.
    • StreamLine Program Overview
      The Program is primarily targeted at the absentee builder, building a vacation/retirement home in an amenitized community some distance from the owner’s primary residence.
      The absentee builder faces unique challenges, trying to build a personalized home, on time and on budget, from a distance which makes regular personal visits impractical.
    • The Challenge
      Building any custom home is normally a challenging process.
      It is the clients never ending battle of trying to stick to a predetermined budget while still trying to acquire the home of their dreams.
      Additionally, the upper market buyer is predisposed to high levels of quality service.
      Add to this already daunting task, the elements of time, distance and no clear process, and the challenges compound quickly.
      For these reasons and more, most people who have completed this process will openly admit it was not an enjoyable experience and would not be repeated again.
    • The Solution
      The StreamLine Program was designed specifically for this upper market absentee builder and the unique demands they make.
      By focusing on;
      a predetermined process,
      honest and open communication, and
      an integrated team that has worked well together in the past,
      We avoid the pitfalls most commonly associated with absentee building.
    • StreamLine Integrated Team
      The Client is a member of the team, not the information conduit or the referee, but a key team member.
    • Typical Building Process
    • Typical Building Process
      • Typically, the absentee builder becomes the project manager and information conduit for the entire team
    • The Gap
      Knowledge
      Programming
      Budget
      In all projects their exists a gap between programming and budget.
      Programming being the aesthetics and the finishes of the home and the budget being what the total cost is to have the programming that you desire.
      We have found that this gap is directly correlated to knowledge of;
      Design requirements
      Site challenges
      Material costs
      Local trade costs
      Finish options
      The goal is not to eliminate the gap at the outset but to reduce it as quickly possible through process and communication.

      Project Outset
      Architectural Design Phase
      Contractor Pricing Phase
      The Gap is typically painfully closed at pricing, once the full set of architectural drawings are complete.
    • The Gap Trap
      Reality
      Programming
      Budget
      This information gap is typically closed only when the construction documents are completed by the architect and the contractor bids the job.
      At this point, it is painful to close the gap because:
      Significant monetary investments have been made
      Significant time investments have been made
      Client has already envisioned themselves in that house
      The ways out of the gap trap are;
      Pay the piper
      Abandon the project
      Cut, shrink, and redraw
      This is expensive in time and money
      Communication becomes difficult, he said/she said and in many cases the client becomes a referee between the contractor and the architect
    • Keys to a Good Project
      Based on our experience the keys to a good project are;
      Process, preparation and planning coupled with honest communication about programming and budget
      Lack of these lead to cost overruns, time delays, and frustration.
    • Streamline Program Overview
    • Three Distinct Phases
      Construction
      Phase
      Invest In Clarity
      Paper Phase
      • Planning phase to close The Gap
      • Sets the project up for success
      • Full team involvement
      • Budget and Aesthetic definition
      • Clarity Meeting
      • Primary Contact – StreamLine
      • Average time – 2-3 months
      • Design development
      • Construction Documents
      • Timber Frame modeled
      • Budget review and refinement
      • Production Meeting
      • Primary Contact – StreamLine
      • Average time – 3-5 months
      • Site clearing
      • Foundation work
      • Timber framing
      • Finish work
      • Move in
      • Primary Contact – Builder Partner
      • Average time – 10-14 months
    • Streamline Program Benefits
      The StreamLine program is at its heart a focus on the knowledge transfer within the team to close the programming and budget gap.
      Benefits of the SL Program
      Speed and efficiency of the team members and a well thought out process
      Interacting on the hand sketches ( programming/budget communication occurs during the first document production!)
      75% of the aesthetics of the home are determined in the first phase
    • Invest In Clarity Overview
    • Invest in Clarity Process Overview
      • The Wish List is a programming document that systematically begins the knowledge transfer process from the client to the StreamLine Team.
      Wish List
      • The Kick-Off call introduces the team and is a detailed review of the project program, budget and site visit schedule.
      Kick-Off Call
      • The Site Visit is an opportunity for the entire team to meet on site and discuss its implications and further the programming knowledge transfer.
      Site Visit
      • The Hand Sketches enable the team to get a look at floor plans and elevations and react relative to aesthetics and budget.
      Hand Sketches
      • The CAD Models further define the aesthetic of the project and the floor planning and enable the builder to more accurately price the project.
      CAD Models
      • The team will work together to come up with budget pricing numbers on the entire project, these numbers are targeted to be +/- 10% accuracy.
      Budget Pricing
      • The Clarity Meeting is a team meeting to review the aesthetic design of the house and to review the budget pricing, to close The Gap.
      Clarity Meeting
    • Invest in Clarity/Closing the Gap
